Happy Roc Day, Spinners!

Anybody else celebrating Distaff (aka Roc) Day? My spinning/weaving guild hosts an annual spin-in at the home of one of our members, and although I've meant to go the past few years since learning to spin, I haven't made it 'til this year. My friend Janet, who some will know as Aunt Janet of Aunt Janet's Fiber Mill in Whitethorn, invited me to attend this year, even offering me the ride I need to make it to Blue Lake, where this year's celebration is taking place.

Although my wheel has no distaff, and I can't operate a drop-spindle to save my prodigious ass, they let me in anyway. ;) This *gorgeous* fiber is what I took home from the gift exchange; it is 8+ ounces of jewel-toned, superwash merino FIBER PR0N! I'm thinking socks, maybe matching socks for Cole & I. Whadya think?


  1. Wow! I think it's gorgeous! I also think I wish I was able to spin sock yarn.

  2. Beauutiful! I'm sure you'll make something gorgeous with it.


Tell me what you're thinking, I dare you!
